>> good friday morning to you. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. time to check the forecast, the cooling forecast i believe, with meteorologist christina loren. >> oh, a woman who knows what's going on in the world of news and weather. yeah, you know what, we're going to see a comfortable weekend. we've got a lot to talk about in the weather department. big changes on the way for next week. you see that hurricane, hurricane dora, weakening overnight. we'll let you know what that means for your mexican travel plans if you have them, that's coming up. mike has good news for commuters in the south bay. >> red on the screen usually not great news. let me show you what was going on. the closure of 101 as you cross, basically approaching or leaving the area of tully road. full freeway closure scheduled to extend until 8:00. a few minutes ago we got word that it instead of being extended picked up early. the map shows you red through the area. speeds below 20.
5:01 am
but that's because the construction quipment is moving and the people are just getting back on the roadway, so no need for an alternate. we're going to track this and see how things clear up. >> thank you. we also have a surprising twist in the bryan stow case. nbc bay area has confirmed that los angeles police have arrested two new suspects in the case. another suspect has been in custody for months but now it appears he may not be connected to that case at all. "today in the bay's" marla tellez is live outside san francisco general hospital with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, laura. no doubt about it, this story has really gripped the bay area since it first broke. bryan stow nearly beaten to death almost four months ago. last night nbc bay area confirmed with the los angeles police department they have arrested two new suspects in his beating. who these suspects are and what led to their arrest, well, we are still waiting to learn those
5:02 am
details. in the meantime, the big question remains what does this mean for giovanni ramirez, the 31-year-old man who the lapd arrested in may, calling him the main suspect ever since. though ramirez is currently serving a 10-month prison sentence for an unrelated parole violation, his attorney is celebrating this latest development. all along attorney ramirez has told lapd his client was not even at dodger stadium the day of march 31st, that was when stow was beaten in the parking lot. >> i guess i'm being forced to take the high road and credit the lapd for continuing the investigation. i think that they made the right move in switching rhd. i think we're seeing the product of that move. >> since the lapd named ramirez as the primary suspect they have been fairly tight-lipped never
5:03 am
citing evidence that linked ramirez to stow. to be clear ramirez was never officially charged with the stow beating. i called the los angeles police department to ask them if they are planning to hold a press conference about this. the woman told me, no, not today but no doubt the l.a. police chief is under pressure. he is going to have to give a statement sooner than later. for bryan stow, the giant fan has been here at sf general more than two months, his condition has gone from critical to serious i. know you have more information about his condition for us. >> we do. the family of bryan stow says he's doing better and is alert. they posted this on the support for stow website. as of last night brian had both eyes open, his right hand was trying to give a thumbs up or hold up two fingers. he closed his eyes and opened.

5:34 am
door you're getting the best clear drive of the morning. what you can expect later on. throughout afternoon high pressure will start to move closer to the bay area but it's not going to bring our temperatures up until monday so we'll get a nice weekend, sunday the best for outdoor activities. that's where we expect the most sunshine. you're on the way to about 82 degrees up in the north bay wine country. will be gorgeous. 85 in san jose and 86 down from about 96 in livermore. got the 7-day outlook coming up. >> a good change, i showed you this a few minutes ago but we'll go back. 101 southbound between highway 37 and san pedro road, typical construction spots restricting flow from two lanes to one. see awe red. increased volume caused increased slowdowns. you have speeds around 40 miles per hour down to the richmond/san rafael bridge. more construction zones clear

5:39 am
school takes a lot. target has it all. >> welcome back everyone. live look outside. golden gate bridge, you can certainly feel the moisture in the air as you kind of see it at this shot. pretty clear at the bay bridge now. but the cloud cover is coming. 5:39 now. we may soon have a date for an end to the military's "don't ask, don't tell policy." a new announcement is expected this morning. brian mooar is live in washington. he joins us with the details. >> reporter: we are expecting a major milestone later today when secretary of defense leon panetta and mike mullen meet
5:40 am
with president obama. news reports are that they are going to certify that "don't ask, don't tell," law of the land for the last 17 years, can be repealed without harming u.s. security. when president obama signs off on that, that starts a 60-day countdown clock toward the final repeal of "don't ask, don't tell." so, if everything happened today, that means "don't ask, don't tell" would be gone sometime in late september. the court challenges of course would end up being moot. the pentagon would be prohibited from doing anything to investigate or discipline soldiers in the military from talking about being gay, but there are still some issues that will have to be worked out that may go way beyond september, specifically benefits for same-sex couples. back to you. >> thank you so much, brian. this morning san francisco police are looking for a gun, the gun they believe fired the shot that killed a 19-year-old suspect in the bay view
5:41 am
district. new ballistics evidence suggests that the fatal bullet was not from a police officer. damian trujillo is live in san francisco and joins us with an update. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this sign here at the scene of the shooting explains a sentiment here in the bayview. you should not pay for muni with your life. now this revelation that kenneth harding may have shot himself according to the medical examiner is sure to stir up more controversy in the bay view. so far one man dead and the gun apparently used to kill him missing. we're going to show you video that is from youtube. it apparently shows a man in a hooded sweatshirt picking up a gun. police are looking for that man and the gun that was lying on the muni plaza. here in the bay view. they are offering a $1,000 reward. after a gun battle with police over the weekend, residents became enraged, getting confrontational with the police
5:42 am
chief over the shooting. but the chief medical examiner and police staff insist police did not fire the gun that killed kenneth harding. >> personally reviewed the analysis, i can say that the bullet is a 380/ .9 mm caliber and not consistent with department-issued duty ammunition. furthermore, the bullet could not have been fired from any department issued firearm. >> reporter: that's a very important fact from the investigators. 380 caliber handgun or bullet is what was found in the body body of ken harding. police are issued 40 caliber handguns. that's the difference that the medical examiner is trying the to make. they did find a bullet that is a .380 caliber in the pocket of ken harding. no matter how you explain this to the residents here you get the feeling you're going to have
5:43 am
a hard time explaining to them or convincing them that kenneth harding may have shot himself. >> thank you. it's 5:42. los angeles police confirming to us this morning that officers have arrested two new suspects in the brutal beating of giants fan bryan stow. it's a stunning moment for the stow family. for the family of the man initially arrested, suspected of the attack, has to be a sense of relief. john cadiz klemack is live in los angeles with a new twist in the case. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, laura. big new twist in this case. i don't know if you recall a few weeks ago we heard from the police chief here who admitted it was possible that this giovanni ramirez may not be the prime suspect. of course now we've seen what's happening now we have this to talk about. ramirez almost exonerated now.
5:44 am
apparently not going to be charged with the beating of bryan stow. he has been in custody since the 22nd of may. his attorney doing so as well. we confirmed that yesterday lapd arrested two different men in records to this. his attorney telling us that since the beginning he as believed that lapd has had the wrong guy. >> forced to take the high road and dread lapd for continuing the investigation. i think they made the right move in switching rhd. they had to bring in and i think we're seeing the product of that move. >> reporter: of course, brian remains in the hospital there in the bay area. of course you guys are following that and we're following it as well. we also know that lap -- admitted to us they have surveillance video they have been keeping an eye on. from before the beating happened. they claim in that they see two
5:45 am
men confronting brian. they don't see the beating itself. it is believed these two men in the video are the two they have in custody. these guys have not been charged yet. that's the latest. i'm john cadiz klemack. laura, back to you. >> thank you, john. in the meantime, bryan stow's family says the media, not the police first told them of the new arrest. so far they are not ready to make a statement but a friend of brian's was. danny simon says he was caught offguard by the news. >> complete surprise. utter surprise and shock. to something i would not expected to have heard any time soon. >> if giovanni did not commit the crime then the lapd should clear his name. stow's family says that brian is alert and awake. we do not follow the latest in
5:46 am
